UlllllHl CUtlll'S, Ullllo uih.iv i iiim,
store of information concerning tho
position nnd prospects of women who
work across tho Atlantic. Tho Hold
for female labor Is much wider tlioro
than it is in tho Old World; prejudice
against tho employment of womon,
which aro rampant here, aro tlioro
either nou-exUtenl or ho atteiiuiitod ns
to bo Innoctioiw. Women occupy nl
iiiosl every profession, and tho Ameri
cans htivo roidi.ud much nioru than
tho Old World tuition the Ideal of lit
ciUT'lero ouvorln uux talents so far at
tho sexes are concerned. In tho States
there are female barristers, pastors,
doctors, anil, in short, members ot
almost every profession except tho
urmy nnd navy, tho nearest approach
to a naval officer being Mrs. Captain
Mary Miller, who recently succeeded
to tho command of a Mississippi steam
boat on tho death df her husband.
There Is hardly a newspaper in tho
country of standing and Inllueiieo
which has not at least two or three
women ns regular members of Its stall'.
One of tho leading newspapers in New
York has a lady as its second-best
writer, and ono of tho best newspaper
properties In the foreign press of
America Is edited by a Herman lady,
who took over the business on tho death
of her husband. Women net ns regular
reporters, anil ono has achieved cotiHld
slderablo notoriety ns a critic of caltlo
shows. As Interviewers women are
very successful, nnd tho npocially of
tho female journalist In America Is a
certain Indelinablo lightness of touch,
combined with a grace and brightness
of expression, which her confrere em
ulates in vain.
Ono point which Impressed Miss
Fnithfull much In her American Jour
nevliiL's is tho fact that women In
America aro much lens nshained to
earn a living than In this country. In
England It Is regarded ns natural ami
right for a man to work for his daily
broad, but for a lady to earn a salary
is too often regarded ns discreditable.
Nino women out of toil who aro unfil
ing their living will prefaco tho state
ment of that fact by n moro or less
elaborate apology for having to work
(or their living. In oilier words, work
Is not regarded ns tho normal stato of
women, anil this shows Itself in many
ways. English ladies applying for a
situation will give falso names, and In
ono case, which only recently enmo
under Miss Falthfuli's notice, a lady
threw up a prolltablo situation rather
than to allow hernamo to bo known to
her fellow workers. In Amorlea it is
otherwise Fine-ladylsm Is creeping In,
no doubt, but il has not yet attained
that universality which it enjoys In
England. America, howover, Is uu
imosllonably tho ' paradiso for Ameri
can women, nor Is thcro nny country
In tho world in which tho husbands tiro
so good, so kind, so allectlonato as In
tho States. In fact, they spoil thoir
wives. In railway carriages tho wifo
lolls at her case, mirroundod by cheap
novels, while her husband nurses tho
children and supplies nil their wants.
The KlNNlng CiiHtoin.
Kissing, in England, was certainly
known and practiced In tho nIxIcouUi
and seventeenth oonttirles, aud prac
ticed with an easy familiarity which
shows tlio custom was general. Iu
deod, so general was tho uso of tho kiss
that It was as usual us tho bow. A
gentleman taking a lady to her sent
from tho danco invariably kissed her,
nnd if ho hail not would have boon
voted a very badly bred follow.
Tho literature of klssos is curious.
Thcro is a story Totalled In tho "Broad
Stotio of Honor" of nn English knight
riding through Franco to tho Field of
tho cloth of Gold. His horse cast n
shoo nt a certain village, tho solgnour
wiieroof had dopnrtou to the samo
rendezvous, but tho soignour'a lady
hospitably entortninod tho travolor.
Sho enmo out of her castle, attended
by twelvo damsols fair to soo. "And,"
said the dame, "forasmuch ns in Eng
land yo have such a custom us that a
man kiss a woman, thoroforo I will
that yn shall also kiss theso my maid
ens." Which thing tho knight straight
way did aud rejoicod groatly thereat.
Tho rtialntncss of tho last pliraso un
doubtedly indicates tho young man's
feelings at tho snluo with considerablo
In Africa, and othor parts of tho
world outside tho circlo of civilization,
kissing is yet nn unknown art. An
African traveler onco offered n kiss,
under favorable circumstances, to a
young lady of King Jumbo Jumbo's
court, but sho recoiled in great alarm,
observing that she was not yet worthy
to bo eaten."
Chased rty a Hoop Snake.
Ono day last week alittlo girl, whoso
namo slipped tho correspondent's usual
ly rotontivo memory, was chased by a
monster hoop snako nearly a mllo.
Just as It socmod that it was about to
striko her, sho dodged behind a largo
apple-tree. Tho rapidly whirling snako
turned to follow, and struck tho trco
with such forco ns to drivo tho
horn spiko Into tho hard wood over
two incites. Tho child was so fright
ened that sho sank down, her heart
thumping as though it would burst
out of her body. Ono of her . brothers
who had seen her Hying down tho hill,
went to soo what was tho matter.
When ho reached tho trco It was quak
ing like an aspen, and its leaves and
fruit falling to tho ground in a porfect
shower, tho prostruto girl being buriod
benoath them. As soon as ho got her
restored to consciousness, ho took a
fenco rail and killod tho vonomous
monster, which was 11 feet, 2J lnohos
in length, and 8 inches in circumfer
ence. Tho horn point on tho tall was
6 inches longv nnd so deeply imboddod
in tho very hard wood that it could not
extricate itself. This all happened
